Nurse Milli :

Hi there

Customer:

hi

Nurse Milli :

a tingling sensation like this could be an irritated nerve ending

Customer:

thats what i was thinking too

Customer:

but i wasnt sure

Nurse Milli :

could also be an allergy to something you have eaten but more likely a nerve ending

Nurse Milli :

(the allergy would not likely be an everday occurance though)

Customer:

its for over 5 months that i have been experiencing this feeling

Nurse Milli :

is it the whole lip area or just in the small area of where the fever blister was

Customer:

the entire lip area

Nurse Milli :

both lips?

Customer:

yes

Nurse Milli :

do any other parts of the face tingle? or just the lips

Customer:

sometimes i can feel like stuff moving

Nurse Milli :

do any other parts of the face tingle? or just the lips




Customer:

my cheeks and under my nose

Nurse Milli :

Ok, so, I don't think this might entirely nerve endings then...glad we were able to chat a little longer.

Customer:

ok

Nurse Milli :

There might be other causes such as MS, side effects of medication, Raynaud's phenomenon, low levels of minerals in the body

Nurse Milli :

(such as calcium, potassium etc)

Customer:

wow!

Nurse Milli :

not to scare you, but I do think you should dig a little deeper into this

Nurse Milli :

I would seek out a Neurology consult

Nurse Milli :

(even panic attacks can cause tingling around the mouth, but a little odd for you to have this everyday)

Customer:

when i feel the sensation, i always looking in the mirror thinking its a cold sore

Customer:

i am seeing a neuro

Nurse Milli :

yes, if is one small area (size of a pencil eraser) that is tingling on the lip, that is understandable, but not the lips, cheeks, and under the nose...that is too large of a large area for it to be just related to a cold sore.

Customer:

because it first started in my head

Customer:

in 2008 of oct

Nurse Milli :

Does the Neuro know you are having this?

Customer:

sometimes its around the edges of the top or bot***** *****p

Customer:

or on the lip itself

Customer:

but mainly on the top lip

Customer:

no not on the lip

Nurse Milli :

ok, I would let your Neurologist know about this

Customer:

ok

Nurse Milli :

it is not normal to have this feeling this often

Nurse Milli :

(especially in more than one area of the face)

Customer:

i will definately let her about it

Nurse Milli :

that sounds like a good idea. make sure you tell her about all the areas the tingling is being felt and for how long it has been going on.

Customer:

ok

Customer:

thanks for ur help

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
